It was the first time I was going on a hike with Deerwalk. I had been waiting for this opportunity for a long time as I was unable to join my team in few of the previous occasions. We were very excited about our hike. Weeks before, we had started planning for our hike. After thorough discussion we settled for a hike from Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park to Jamacho.

Our hike was planned for 21st July, and every participant was given direction to be at office premises by 7 am with required accessories. Due to rumours of ‘Nepal banda’, we thought that the hike could be postponed. But it was not the case. Manish, Ribench, Dinesh and I were the first ones to reach the office. We wasted no time and started buying the required stuffs available at a nearby store. By 8:15, most of the hike participants were at the office. By then, we knew that Sabita, Bipul and Amir would not be joining us due to some unforeseen reasons. Our hike team was reduced to 11 members. Shortly, we left the office for Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park (the starting point for our hike). As we had to pickup Rosina and Yangjee, we planned the route accordingly. We planned our route though Sorhakhutte and Balaju to the park. At Balaju, we had our breakfast and got prepared for our hike. We reached the gate of the park at 10 am and bought tickets for entry.

We distributed our stuffs among participants. Everyone was given their share of snacks and water. We left the park gate at 10 for our destination Jamacho. The enthusiasm of such hiking expedition was clear on everyone’s face. The environment was perfect. The dense forest, the slippery path, the dampness of the soil, the solitary environment far from the noise and pollution of valley were all making the hike awesome. Feeling of unity in the group was prominent. Each participant was enjoying the freshness of the open environment.

Making fun of each other and screaming in the wild without any reason was an incredible experience. Watching the hills, plains, sceneries, beautiful insects etc were another aspect of the hike. While Pratik was keen at picturing the event, Manish was busy making fun of others as expectedly, supported by Bijay. The victims being Dinesh, Yangjee and Sagar for most of the part. After an hour and half of climbing up we reached a plain land with incredible view of the valley. We took rest for some time. We shared our snacks with each other. After 15 minutes of rest, we headed towards our destination Jamacho. We were all tired of walking the ups and downs of the dense forest. It felt like we had been walking for hours, though it was only an hour and half of hiking up till then. We were taking rest continuously at short intervals of 10-15 minutes. Every person in the hike team was carrying their water and snacks by themselves, so we didn’t have any shortage.

By 12:30 we reached Jamacho, our hike destination. We took rest for a while, shared our remaining snacks. From the top of the tower at Jamacho perfect view of the Kathmandu valley could be seen.

At 2:45 we left for the national park gate. Walking down to our starting point was comparatively much easier. It took a bit more than an hour to reach the park gate where we meet the office van for pickup.

Overall we had lots of fun and had a great time with Deerwalk Hikers. This was one of the most incredible hikes of my life. Those funny and incredible moments of this hike will be remembered for long time to come. This was my first hike with Deerwalk and I look forward to many more in the coming months.

Well, before I start getting into all hike-mode, that bandh rumor circulating in Facebook did have some effect on our hike schedule. Originally planned to commence our journey at around 7:00am, we simply couldn’t, because of the bandh talks. I guess it’s better late than never, but getting prepped early in the Sunday morning for a supposedly postponed plan made it sound worthless when you could have had a pretty sweet sleep. After all that hustle and bustle, we finally made it to the Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park entry gate, with a brief stop at By-Pass for breakfast.

A step beyond that entry gate turned into thousands and thousands of more steps. All I can remember is walking and just walking. Had there been no leeches, walking wouldn’t have been such an issue. Not that I am complaining but, having to drag your feet up while keeping a lookout for those creepy little blood suckers was frustrating. But it was like “Hey, that’s what hikes are supposed to be”.

Few mini-stops in-betweens were truly like heaven. Everybody used to check their shoes and feet for leeches. Those whoever were the victims were heavily made fun of. As, few of our hiking crew are so lean, we even assumed that the leeches would have a bad day if they ever get onto any of those folks. On top of that, “a blood donation program organized by leeches” was the main line used by every other hiker for pulling each other’s legs. These few funny moments really made it possible for me to complete the hike.

Finally, at around 1:30pm, we reached our destination, Jamacho. The view from the hill top was breathtakingly awesome. We could literally see the entire valley. Ring road, Tundikhel, Bus Park, Dharahara, etc were looking so small that they could easily fit in the palm of our hands. After few photo sessions, we were back on our feet. It was relatively easier to go down a hill than climb up. It took us just an hour to reach the main gate. Since, we were all famished and tired; we decided to stop by Sheesha in New Road. After that, all I can remember is FOOD and DRINKS.

All in all, the hike was fun and a sort of escape from the humdrum of daily life.

  7. Thank you for this article. I might also like to state that it can end up being hard if you are in school and simply starting out to initiate a long credit ranking.

  8. A lot of of the things you articulate happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light previously.

  10. Good post made here. One thing I would really like to say is always that most professional job areas consider the Bachelor Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online college diploma. While Associate Certifications are a great way to get started on, completing a person’s Bachelors opens many entrance doors to various jobs, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online editions of their diplomas but often for a substantially higher charge than the institutions that specialize in online college diploma programs.

  30. One important issue is that while you are searching for a education loan you may find that you will need a co-signer. There are many scenarios where this is true because you could find that you do not use a past credit standing so the lender will require that you’ve got someone cosign the money for you. Thanks for your post.

  31. Furthermore, i believe that mesothelioma cancer is a scarce form of cancers that is typically found in people previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous cells form in the mesothelium, which is a defensive lining that covers almost all of the body’s organs. These cells typically form within the lining of your lungs, belly, or the sac which encircles one’s heart. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  38. I do like the manner in which you have framed this specific difficulty and it really does offer me some fodder for consideration.

Anyway, thank you for this outstanding piece and even though I do not necessarily agree with this in totality, I regard the viewpoint.

  62. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

  63. I just want to mention I am just newbie to blogging and definitely savored your web page. Almost certainly I’m likely to bookmark your blog post . You absolutely come with exceptional well written articles. Regards for sharing your web site.
